    AR 6.5 Grendal Barrel and Bolt

    A mate is looking to buy as per title.
    I know nothing about AR's but said I would put the word out.
    Is there anything about?

    Cheers

    I think Ken at NZAR15 has them.
    Or get a gunsmith to modify a 6.5 barrel to suit. Mine was done with a Tikka barrel.

    You modified a Tikka barrel to fit an AR 15?

    Where there's a will and a lathe there's a way.

    I can't see why you couldn't so long as there is enough metal to machine.

    Id always wondered if it could be done, just hadnt heard of it actually being done.
    Be a good idea to remember for when we run out of AR barrels and the police wont release any more permits

    Depends on how much a suitable barrel costs. If the price of a genuine ar15 barrel is high enough I'm sure it would be economically viable

    Yes it's the bolts and barrel extensions that will be the challenge.

    Scott Trail did it. He also modified a bolt to suit as well

    I have a few AR uppers made from barrel blanks its easy enough to do but not as economical as buying an AR barrel but given they are non standard cartridges there aren't any options.

    Thanks for the replies.
    I've been talking to my mate and he would prefer an upper kit (barrel & bolt) in 16-18".

    Cheers
